Toyota Corporation has thanked Kevin Rudd for the $70 million to produce Australian made hybrid vehicles.
A Toyota executive said the money would go a long way towards combatting tough times for the corporation.
"While it may be true that we are already making wads of cash, there are now only a dozen or so large car makers in the world, so we are really kind of endangered, if you think about it," the Toyota spokesman said. "The $70 mill. will add a much needed 2 per cent to our next quarter profits."
"However, the crisis is by no means over, and we can always do with more taxpayer money," he concluded.
